"Satisfactory Hotel in Portland"
The Clarion Hotel provided a satisfactory overnight during my business trip to Portland. Apparently you can have breakfast included, which would have been a plus. I paid extra for it, but many people had coupons.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was fine and it was only for one night but the beds were terrible. Ours was slightly slanted and it was an old spring mattress that had seen better days. Wouldn't go back even for the discount rate we got.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Pool in Portland!"
Everything about the hotel is great, even though it is on the older side. The best part is the pool area which is very large and goes to 7ft deep to allow swimming laps and still has a shallow end for the kiddos. The also have a small hot tub and exercise room. The only negative is that there is no free breakfast, they have a breakfast buffet for $8.95 […] in the hotel restaurant or you can go right across the street to Dunkin!

"Clean comfortable convienient"
Very close to the Amtrak station , Only problem is it,s hard to see from the road.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Five minute drive to the Portland waterfront"
This is a great place to stay if you don't want to pay the much higher prices of hotels right on the waterfront. It's clean, has very friendly staff, and is modern and comfortable. The price is very reasonable. We enjoyed our stay very much. Highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for a short stay"
The hotel was convenient to downtown Portland and having parking on site was an advantage. Only a few problems, mainly the temperature of the room. Before I booked I noticed another reviewer mentioned the uneven heat provided by the radiators. The air ranged from cool to luke warm, but never got warm enough to truly heat the room. No spare blankets […] were provided, which made sleeping uncomfortable even in a king bed. Hotel could use some touch ups with the wallpaper and carpeting (not too clean), but the staff was eager to help and did what they could given that they had a fully booked hotel.

"comfortable beds; cold hot tub."
The beds were very comfortable! But i had to lower my rating because the hot tub was cold and the hot tub and pool were why we chose to stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very happy with our stay."
I love the stay we had that day, we was able to check in early where I just got done working a 15 hour shift and had to drive down from Bangor. Thank you ever so much.. The only thing I didn't care for was the bathroom floor were like ice on my bare feet.. We plan on staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel nice pool and hot tub but the hallways were freezing and I had to get up 3 times at night because the room was either to hot or cold there was no thermostat in the room so the heater always ran until you shut it off manually because it was to hot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good place to stay for one night"
The hotel was clean and updated. They took dogs which is why we chose there.. The personnel were pleasant. The only real complaint was that the sheets were super thing meaning I could see right through them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pete is Awesome!"
We had a great stay at Clarion while looking for wedding venues in Portland. We arrived well past midnight, but were warmly welcomed by Pete - a US Marine who comp'd breakfast for our our trip after discovering that we were both Marines. The bartender was great as well, and recommended some additional wedding venues that we had not heard of. Great staff, […] great pricing, will recommend to others...maybe even wedding guests!

"Near the transportation centers, Bus Rail and Air."
New Years Eve, lots of partying but not noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great nite stay"
Easy access from route 295,very friendly and helpful staff. Was traveling with 2 puppies (2 month old and a 5 month old). Room very clean and refreshing. Was not able to go out to eat so had meals sent in from hotel restaurant. Excellent food and overall excellent stay. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel room was clean, but there was a little mildew on the ceiling over the tub. Room was equipped with a refrigerator and microwave, which helps make up for the lack of a complimentary breakfast. The hotel also saves money by offering a choice of two double beds or a single king, but not two queens. We were happy to have a single king, so that seemed […] like a good place to save. We had a comfortable stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A cut above"
The staff here could not be more friendly. This hotel exceeds in all rating categories.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were visiting family in Portland for the holidays. It is a convenient location to everything! We have stayed here before. I do like it better than other hotels in this area of Portland. Off season, rates are reasonable. Everyone is very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable room but a small bathroom.Right off of I-295 & about 10 minutes from Portland waterfront.Beds were comfortable & staff was efficient & friendly.Stayed here for 2 days & was quite happy.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was the first hotel I have stayed in that did not include a continental breakfast in the overnight price . If I had noticed this when booking I would have gone elsewhere. It was may sound petty, however my daughter and her children and I love going to breakfast at the hotels we stay in . The pool and jet tub were clean and enjoyed . Except for no […] breakfast ,everything else was fine. Thank you Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"you get what you pay for"
Not the best hotel, and not the worst. If you just need a place to sleep and plan to be out enjoying the city most of the time, this is a good alternative. You can be down in Old Port in 10 minutes so save the extra $100 for a room in Old Port and use it for food. Portland is a great food city!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I went to Portland several times staying at more expensive and I found this hotel to be as good or better than the others. Room was very nice with normal amenities (including refrigerator) and the lounge and restaurant very good. I will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great customer service and close to downtown Portland. It's no frills but still adequate with amenities (gym, pool and free wifi). Room was spacious and clean. No complaints!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived at hotel parking lot lighting was not good at all. Overall the lighting was very poor, which made my wife uncomfortable. She did report to front desk on check out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room had an odor. We could not adjust the heat - we were either cold or too hot.. Shower did not have much water pressure, and the hot tub was cold, Price was good but probably will not return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Musty smell when we walked down the hall to our room. We had no shower curtain in room - had to call and request one. There was a dog barking constantly, for at least 30 minutes .... continuously. There was no microwave available to pop popcorn.Genuine Expedia guest review
"overight stay on 10/11/13"
we always stay there as it is convenient and the best beds!!! We have an early flight in the morning when we are there and the staff and transporation to the airport is always great!!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great overall stay"
very quiet, very clean. A nice, modern looking hotel. The beds were wonderful. The pool was very nice and clean. The staff was great as well. Just a great experience all in allGenuine Expedia guest review
We felt as though we had the last of the hotel picks. Although the sleeping facilities were good, the amenities and indoor environment were not very good. We were very disappointed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's an average hotel"
I went away for the weekend to Portland to get away from the city. The hotel was well maintained. It is driving distance or a cab ride away from the city center. The price was $180/night vs $230/night in the Hilton in the middle of the city. The price difference seems slim, but considering the city hotels were booked, the Clarion could charge a higher […] rate. The staff at the welcome desk was friendly. It's an average hotel, just wish the Portland hotels were lower in price in general. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Planes, Traines and Hotel Courtesy Shuttles!"
No hotel in Portand is more conveniently placed for travelers who will be dealing with both the airport (we had to return a rental car) and the Amtrack station (we were taking the downeaster to Boston)! We used the Clarion's courtesy shuttle to retrieve us from the airport-call-to-pick-up 7 minutes!!!, and the next morning, we were delivered to the […] train/bus terminal in less than 5 minutes! Super friendly desk staff, and clean, comfy room. I highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near Bus terminal"
Within walking distance of bus terminal. Short drive (4 miles) to Old Port.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick overnight stay only."
Quick overnight stay only. Location was reason for choice of this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
My curtains did not close at all leaving the outside to look in. I didn't like that there was nothing on the bathroom vanity: no soap dish so you just put the soap on the counter. The bed and pillows were great. Morning staff were disinterested in helping as I needed a shuttle and check out. My stay was sufficient for a night but I would not stay a […] gain.

Clean, reasonable price, great location. Small bar. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel a short drive to downtown"
The Clarion was surprisingly nice considering my expectations were somewhat low. If you don't mind driving into downtown (which is a bit of a pain considering parking) the Clarion is worth the money you'll save by staying outside downtown. The hotel staff was wonderfully friendly and helpful. All things considered, if I went to Portland again with the […] intention of shopping, etc in the Old Port area, I would spend the extra money to stay downtown. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with good location"
Spent just one night and took shuttle in morning to airport. Staff was very pleasantGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, convenient airport shuttle, great staf"
My husband and I stayed at this hotel because he was arriving at the Portland airport on a late arriving flight. I did not realize that the shuttle stopped at 11pm, however the staff was extremely helpful and told us about a taxi service that would be very economical and offered to send the taxi out when he called them on arrival . They ultimately offered […] to comp his taxi trip when he called them to have a taxi sent. We ate at the restaurant for breakfast and dinner and both meals were excellent. The gentleman who waited on us (also the bartender and omelet cooker in the am) was friendly and just enjoyable despite being quite busy at times. Can't say enough about how friendly the staff were. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The lobby is far superior to the room, and the hallways. There is an odor in the hallways that is not quite right. It was not cigarette smoke, but like a casino that had been cleaned, but not completely. The bathroom door lock had damage to the area surrounding the lockset, which I reported to the front desk; the person who took the info said he would […] note it on the my bill. The door had pry marks clearly visible. Why would this not be reported by housekeepers, and repaired? Don't know if I would stay at a Clarion again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very close to the airport, we flew in late and just wanted to go strait to bed and it was perfect for that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not recommend"
My biggest cimplaints would be mold in the shower, and no included cintinental breakfast. when i told the staff at checkout about mold on the shower curtain, they saidthey would clean it, but did nothing to make up for the incomvience. i would not recommend this hotel, especially for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nother Fancy but Nice"
The hotel staff are very helpful and courteous. The room we stayed was very clean and comfortably furnished. The hotel is conveniently located from the airport and provided shuttle service to the airport. The restaurant was adequate but service was very slow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Airport stay over"
Very nice.............................................................................!Genuine Expedia guest review
Average hotel for the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad nothing fancy"
It was okay. Entrance light did not work when we entered and the fridge was off so it was warm, I appreciate the energy saving but it took a while to get cold. The hot and cold water was reversed. Again not a terrible thing but it isn't five star. The bartender was super nice, the food is middle grade, with so many great restaurants in portland I would […] only eat there if you were tired, and it was late, and you didn't want to go into town. The carpet was kind of dingy also. At $150.00 there are others that are nicer and at that price I would expect a little cleaner room. It is right by the airport and the bus station so that is supper convenient. Good luck out there! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lost & Found Service HORRIBLE!!!"
Staff was friendly and helpful when we checked in, she even gave us a map and pointed out all her recommended attractions and restaurants for us. The room was about average according to its price. But when I realized I left my iphone charger in the room in one day after I checked out, the nightmare started. First, I called the front desk and he transferred […] me to the cleaning squad but nobody picked up the phone, so I left a message. After waited for one day, I called their front desk again and told them my situation, the front desk man told me he would make sure the cleaning squad received my message and would let them contact me ASAP. But that never happened, then I called them the third time, I did not even finish explaining my situation and that front desk man just cut me from the middle of the conversation and transferred me again. And once again, NOBODY was answering and NOBODY called me back till now. I mean, it is not about the money I need to spend for the charger, I can easily order a new one online. It is about the promise their staff made and the way they treat their customer. I will never go to this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel."
Shuttle does not run from airport after 11PM. Taxi is about 12.00. Be sure and make a res for the shuttle in the morning to the airport at the front desk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clarion on Congress, Portland MA"
Drove into Portland, needed a pit stop on my way to Boston. Busy weekend in Portland ahead of Labor Day weekend. All hotels in the Old Port were booked, so I elected the Clarion. This hotel is just outside the Old Port, but only a 10 minute $10 cab ride away. Free parking, clean room, basic hotel with places to eat nearby. A bit rundown overall and […] nothing fancy but works. I would stay here again if I needed to. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to train station"
professional and friendly staff; clean rooms, good breakfast, shuttle to the train station was available when we were ready to leaveGenuine Expedia guest review
"Last minute location near Portland Center"
While the hotel is off the beaten path, it's location is not a problem, although better directions on the website would help. The facility is basic, lobby plain but adequate and breakfast substantial. Where I struggled was with the condition of the room and housekeeping.Genuine Expedia guest review
